The last humans spent centuries searching for a new Earth. Now they face extinction.
For three hundred years, arks have carried the last remnants of humanity through dark space. The ships are old, failing, and every colonist must do their duty to ensure the fleet's survival.
Maeve is a metalworker, toiling in the blistering sublevels of the London. She's lost friends and family to the hazardous work conditions and fears every job she's assigned could be her last. All she wants is a little control over her life, but the oppressive sublevel enforcers ensure that's not an option.
Now, after decades of traveling, the ships have finally reached their destination: Soren, a toxic planet that may have the resources they desperately need. But mining a planet comes at a price, and Maeve and the other workers will be expected to pay it with their lives.
If a better world awaits, Maeve's sure to be dead long before the fleet finds it... unless she finds a way to control her destiny and change it.
Better World is a 154 page novella and takes place two years before the events in Legacy Code.

About the Author
Interview with the Author
Q - Will I enjoy these books? A - Do you like mystery, suspense, and books with real characters facing struggles you can relate to? Do you like dark stories with morally gray edges that make you question where our own society is headed? Do you want to go on an epic journey to find out how humanity will survive an apocalypse of its own making? If you said yes to these questions, I think you'll like these books.
Q - What if I'm not sure I like science fiction? A - Fractured Era is a story about people. Love and hate, mystery and suspense, intrigue and betrayal. It's not about the tech these characters use or about space battles. It's about humans and how they live and react to the challenges they face. If you love TV shows like Game of Thrones, The 100, or The Walking Dead, you'll enjoy this series.
Q - I'm not sure I want to commit to a long series... Can I sample just one story and see if it's for me? A - Absolutely! You can get a free story and song from the series here: smarturl.it/AutumnKalquist
Q - What order should I read the books in? A - Reading everything in perfect chronological order isn't necessary, or even possible, since I am always releasing new prequel stories for my readers. So you can begin with any of the short stories or start with Legacy Code.
The short stories take place back on Earth, 300 years before the events of Legacy Code. They contain no spoilers for Legacy Code, but instead reveal new information you won't find in the Legacy Code series. But here is the current chronological order of the released stories:

Q: Is it true you release a song with every book? A: Yes! There are songs in some of my books, and sometimes they are written by the characters themselves. I'm a singer, songwriter, and music producer, and I work with Freya Wolfe to release a new song for every major book release. These songs are currently *not* for sale. The only way to get free high-quality MP3s of my new songs is to get them here: smarturl.it/AutumnKalquist
